      14               5 30                                                           1418                 650

Bank Statement for December


Beginning Balance                                                                                       $13,600

Deposits and other Credits

          Dec. 1                                                              EFT      $  300

5                                                                                                                                                        4,170

                22                                                                   BC    1,400                9,090




Checks and other Debits

           Dec  8                                                            NSF      $1,000

           Dec 11 (Check 1416)                                                      860

           Dec 19                                                           EFT           700

           Dec 31 (Check 1419)                                                   1,940


           Dec 31                                                              SC            60               (5,340 )        


Ending balance                                                                                             $ 17,350  


Explanations: BC = bank collection; EFT = electronic funds transfer;

NSF = nonsufficient funds checks; SC = service charge


a.       The EFT credit was a receipt of rent. The EFT debit was an insurance payment.

b.      The NSF check was received from a customer

c.       The $1400 bank collection was a note receivable.

d.      The correct amount of check 1419 for rent is $1940. Dunlap’s controller mistakenly recorded the check for $1490



  1. Prepare the bank reconciliation of Dunlap Insurance at December 31, 2012
  2. Journalize any required entries from the bank reconciliation

  * collections on account $62,700

  * write-offs of uncollectible receivables, $7,000

  2. Using the same facts, Journalize the entries using the direct write-off method. Post to Accounts receivable and Uncollectible account expense and show their balances at September 30, 2012.
  3. What amount of uncollectible account expense would Daisy report on its September income statement under each of the two method? Which amount better matches expense with revenue? Give your reason
  4. What amount of net accounts receivable would Daisy report on its September 30, 2012 balance sheet under each two methods? Which amount is more realistic? Give your reason.
